Good to hear you had a good vacation Paulm.  Yes, Napanee and surrounding area is lovely, as is most of Eastern Ontario.

Welcome Back.

Paul,

Do I see a story in there from a familiar "face"?  ;) 

As well as story lines that ring true. Thanks for sharing the book title Grizz as well as the link, Paul.

Thanks Grizzly and Paul for your words of encouragement and feedback on  Cipralex. Day 3 and I've experienced very little in the way of side effects. I was honestly terrified of this stuff after reading comments online (elsewhere) about it. But of course people react differently. I have also read some good reviews.

Does anyone here practice Meditation?  I try to include it in my life every day. Sometimes just for a few minutes, but it does help. The following article shows a positive spin on the combination of SSRI's and a Mindfulness Practice.

I know I've been quiet for a while. I have visited and looked in on the forum, but I've been trying to decide my path. I went back to the Doctor and talked things out. Starting Cipralex this morning, first meds in over 20 years. On one hand I'm looking forward to feeling better about myself and life. On the other hand, I'm terrified of the potential side effects. The pharmacist assured me that these newer SSRI's are much easier on the system. I sure hope so! And I've also a referral for counselling.  Thanks for talking to me about this and helping me find the nerve to pursue help.

Daniel,

Thanks for posting this. Some information that is new to much such as the fact that Depression is now considered on par with Smoking as a Health Risk.

Hi Everyone,

I joined earlier in the week and has been slowly looking around at older posts to get a feel for the site.
Like a few others here, I've not had a Clinical Diagnosis. However, it's not difficult for those who have known me for years to see a pattern of Depression.
I actually went to my Doctor last week to discuss getting help and she dismissed me, saying that my job wasn't stressful? (Because I work retail). What could I possibly have to be stressed about? Well, there's my husband's Chronic Illness and My Fear of the Commute to work. And who is to say that I don't have stress on the job? Is the Doctor there at work with me??

So I went looking for support meetings online and came across this forum. Thanks Sooo much for being here. I've already found some peace by reading through the posts.

Have a Great Weekend. Happy Father's Day to those who are fathers or have fathers to celebrate with.

I'm looking forward to reading more and getting to know you better.
